Trivia

In an early "Super Dave" sketch, Super Dave (Bob Einstein) attempted to overcome being crushed by a wrecking ball dropped on his head, by repeating the word "Balloonball". The result, at the end of the sketch, was Super Dave's helmeted head, with two sneakers poking out underneath. The sketch was so popular that for a period the Showtime network used a cartoon icon of Super Dave's head on two feet in ads for the show.

This series popularized the character of accident-prone stuntman Super Dave Osborne (Bob Einstein), leading to a spinoff TV series and even a movie a few years later. The character, however, actually originated on an earlier John Byner TV series in the early 1970s.

Only host John Byner received an on-screen credit. However, sometimes Byner or producer Bob Einstein (aka Super Dave Osbourne) would introduce an actress or actor to the audience.
